And "VMMaker versionString" should give a more detailed version
string. Tim, we aught to think up some way to get this plus the
SVN version level into something that could be reported as
"Smalltalk getSystemAttribute: something". I don't know much
about SVN so I don't know how this might be automated, but
there must be some way to do it.

I'd take that OSPP out of your build until you get a runnable VM. This
version has some new pthread stuff in it that is not tested on OS X,
so you should probably take it (and any other non-essential plugins)
out of the mix for troubleshooting purposes.
